Provides a method for laboaratory or bench testing of air filters used in general ventilation and airconditioning systems.

This Standard provides test methods for laboratory or bench testing of air filters used in general ventilation and airconditioning systems. It also includes general information on test dusts, test rig and apparatus. Test methods for filter applications are given in AS 1324.1. NOTES: 1 Requirements of performance and construction of air filters for use in general ventilation and airconditioning are specified in AS 1324.1. 2 Methods for on-site testing of High Efficiency Particulate Air filters (HEPA filters) are specified in AS 1807 series. Performance, construction and methods of test for HEPA filters are specified in AS 4260.
